The ESU International Public Speaking Competition will take place between May 9th and 13th 2016.
The theme for the National Finals and International Final is 'Integrity has no need of rules'. The theme for the heats of the International Finals is 'The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any'.
The ESU International Public Speaking Competition has now been running for 34 years. When the IPSC started, it was an international tournament between the national public speaking champions of England and Australia. Today, the competition reaches over 40,000 young people in 50 countries across the globe. Recent winners of the competition have included Mauritius, The Philippines, Yemen, Lebanon, South Korea, Malaysia, Australia and Iceland.
The purpose of the IPSC is to bring together the best speakers from all over the world for a week of international cultural exchange and public speaking competition. It showcases the very highest standard of public speaking from around the world, while giving delegates an opportunity to meet and engage with other young people of different backgrounds and cultures.
